Lippert Components Acquires Patent-Pending Design For Six-Point Leveling System

GOSHEN, Ind., March 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Lippert Components, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Drew Industries Incorporated (NYSE: DW), reported today that it acquired the patent-pending design for "Level Up™", an innovative six-point leveling system for towable recreational vehicles (RVs).

"To eliminate unwanted rocking and swaying with other leveling systems for towable RVs, you may have to adjust up to four different manual or power jacks.  Based on the terrain, you may even need to position those jacks on blocks to get the RV to the desired position.  Not only does the patent-pending Level Up™ six-point hydraulic design level the RV in seconds but it eases undue stress on the chassis, windows, and sidewall when the RV's slide-outs are extended or retracted," said Brian Donat, Director of Marketing for Lippert Components.  

Level Up is the first hydraulic six-point leveling system designed specifically for towable RVs.  The six-point design helps prevent twisting issues while leveling.  The system works from a centrally located key pad that levels from side to side, then front to back.  "The Level Up™ product is also available in after market kits from the Trailair Service Center located in Goshen, IN for the customer that currently owns an RV," said Donat.

"The Level Up™ design is a natural fit with our stabilization products for towable RVs,  and is consistent with our overall strategy of adding more value to the RV," said Jason Lippert, President and CEO of Lippert Components.  "We continuously strive for added value for all our products.  Leveling systems once only used for high-end towable RVs are now reaching more mid-line products.  As this trend continues, we expect that Level Up™ will be used on more and more towable RVs."

Lippert Components supplies a broad array of components for RVs and manufactured homes, including doors, chassis, chassis parts, axles, and upholstered furniture.  In addition, Lippert Components manufactures slide-out mechanisms for RVs, and trailers primarily for hauling boats.  Lippert Components serves most major national manufacturers of RVs and manufactured homes in an efficient and cost-effective manner.  Additional information about Lippert Components, Inc. and its products can be found at  and
